VOL. LV, no; 7 E CAREY BEIDLER SHOOTS HIS WIFE III TOLEDO CALLED AT HER APARTMENTS IN COMPANY WITH THEIR -. SON. MARION HE GAVE HER NO WARNING But Opens Firs After Having Been Invited to Remainto Dinner ' v Arrested while Attempt-' Ing to Escape, " This community was severely shocked early Tuesday morning when the news was circulated that Carey S. Beidler had shot and killed his wife at her ap-partments in Toledo. Monday evening. The blow came very heavy upon his aged parents. Mr. and Mrs. . Frank N. Beidler of this place, who are highly respected citizens and members of the M. K. church, and Comrade Beidler is a past commander and a member of Post . 52 G. A, R., and Mrs. Beidler is a past president of the Waterloo W. R. C. No. 27 and the members of all these organ izations are deeply affected by the sorrows that have come to the family. The news prostrated the parents and they were unable to personally look af ter the terrible affair aa it would affect all concerned. They have another son, their eldest, living in Toledo to whom "they appealed in their sorrow to report the full conditions that would necessar ily follow the terrible deed. v ; f The story of' the' life of; Carey S, Beidler and his wife Cora - Beidler is a sad one. Young Beidler learned the profession of telegrapher : and . while quite young was much of the time away from home and his marriage to Cora 'Hart was unknown to the family until his wife appeared with her ' boy baby calling at the home of her husband's parents, about twelve years ago. de- . manding recognition as their son's wife. The conditions were finally accepted " and much of the time the boy,' Marion, has made his . home . with .,. his grand parents as Carey and his wife have been separated . most of the time for eight or tea years past. During this time young Beidler has lived a wreckless life resorting to drink at times and the associations were not of the best. , His wife in the meantina supported herself by doing work in restaurants and housekeeping and in some ' degree assisted her husband but. the fact that they lived apart most of the time in-- dicates that the desirable felicity of the home .life was lacking.' . :,- - .'it - t " Story of the. Crime. V:,' The Toledo Blade gives the following account of the shooting: '...:'',.,- . "Following an unsuccessful attempt to induce hiu wife, from wham he tad been separated several months,; to live with him again, C S..r" Beidler, 28; a telegraph operator, who came to Toledo a few weeks ago from his home' in Waterloo, Ind., shot and . almost instantly killed the woman at 5:10 Monday afternoon. The shooting occurred in the woman's . boarding- house, 225 North Erie street,, where,' according to the landlady, Mrs. Beidler had "been living for six weeks under the name of Cora Vance. : 1 ' Marion Beidler, the 12 year old son of the couple, who came from . Waterloo to Toledo Saturday to visit his father, accompanied the latter to the - mother's home and stood within two or three feet of his parents when the shots were fired. v '; -;Y" A few minutes after' the shooting, Beidler and his son were' arrested on Erie street near Jefferson " avenue by Motor. Patrolmen Palicki and Fake- hany. The boy was taken to the Juvenile Home and Beidler was locked up at the police headquarters, , charged with murder. f' ": -? ' Death Comes Quickly" - ; Mrs. Beidler was shot twice. The first bullet passed . through her right hand and the second . struck her in the face under the - right eye, . and pene trated the brain. . r ailing, the woman struck her head on the floor with such force that her skull was fractured. She . died in less than five minutes. ' According to Beidler his wife left him several months ago and came to Toledo, He said that about six weeks ago he also came to Toledo, leaving - bis son in the care of his . parents in Waterloo. Since August 22, Beidler has been employed by the Lake Shore as an . oper ator at the Union station. - i - Boy Flees itShot v . When Beidler' and his son called at the house Monday his wife .was alone in the . kitchen. . The landlady, Mrs, Mildred Barnard, was in an adjoining room.. As soon as Beidler entered the kitchen, according to -the landlady, he began to upraid his- wife and two or three minuteB later the shots were fired. At the first shot the boy fled. As soon as he had fired the second, time Beidler tossed the revolver on a chair and fol lowed his son out of the house. '.' The. dead woman, who was 32 years old, is survived by her mother, Mrs. Alice Davis, who lives at Brimfield, Ind." .. ... Other Toledo papers state that Marion had been sent by his father to bis wife's room -several times during the day to carry messages and that Mr. Beidler I went with his son on the last trip by invitation of his wife and just before the Bhootfng he had enquired if there was anv other man in the house which was answered in the negative. The ! supposition is that he was jealous of his wife's conduct and this led to the terrible deed. . The entire community here extend sympathy to the parents and retrret the unfortunate conditions that have resulted so disastrously. . Jack Johnson's Wife Suicides Jack Johnson, the negro champion of hard knocks, has his troubles also.. He married a white woman and her life was miserable because her white acquaint-, ances refused to recognize her" for the reason that she had a negro,, and the negro married women wouldn't have anything to do with her because t they accused her of marrying Johnson for his money, and to end her misery last Friday, Sept. 13, an unlucky day, she committed suicide by shooting herself, under a nervous strain, as she was arranging to leave Chicago on a western trip for her health. So runs the world away and it is time to put on the brakes. MARSHAL STOPS AN AUTO But Not for Violating the Eight Mile Speed Ordinance An accident that came very near be ing serious in results occurred at seven o'clock Tuesday morning at the street corner by Dr. Darby's drug store, iiurb .ttmger, town , ' Marshal, was standing on the crossing at the corner talking with Frank N.' Beidler when Dr. J. E. Showalter came around the corner in his auto and the Marshal ad mits he was to blame and lost his bal ante attempting to cross the street in front of the machine and as Dr. S. veered towards the side walk to prevent the : accident the : marshal hesitated. stepped in front of the machine and was knocked down. He had presence of mind enough to grasp the brakerod and was carried about twenty-five feet. Owing to his corpulence . he was only slightly bruised and his clothing badly torn. The doctor put on the brakes of his machine but was worse frightened than the marshaL Mr. Ettinger at taches no blame to the . doctor and is very happy that results were . not mors serious. Those who witnessed the ac cident were quite sure there would be a vacancy in the office of town marshal. . Change for Pensioners After January 1, pensioners will re ceive their quarterly checks direct -from Washington without executing vouchers therefor or even signing a receipt for the check, which will be sent to the pensioner'at his last post office given. and if he should change his , post office he must notiiy, the pension bureau, as post masters are not permitted to forward the checks to any other address. To avoid any losses, ' frauds or errors the pensioner must take his certificate and two identifying witnesses to the bank or to the person Who cashes bis check. ' In case of death some other arrangements will be made to close up the account. The . inconveniences of this method will be greater than to make out vouchers in the old way. The checks will probably arrive a few days sooner under the pew plans. ; " .
